  1. Budget (including currency): ~ Rs. 90,000 to 1,25,00 ($1200 to $1700) Country: India Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Basic day-to-day tasks, with occassional gaming and video rendering Hey, Hope this finds you well. I need to build a PC on urgent basis since my previous one died I had planned on getting the RTX 3070, but it's not available yet for Indian market. So, I need help if I should be opting for an Intel or AMD based PC, given that I'll upgrade to RTX 3070 (if it's priced well here ). Hence, I don't wish to spend extra money on GPU (if I opt for non-integrated graphics based CPU). Thus, could y'all help me in selecting an integrated graphics CPU (be it Intel or AMD), that wouldn't bottleneck the RTX 3070, and be great for 6-8 yrs. Thanks.
  2. Hello everyone, I need your help and advice for the build that I am planning to build for my cousin. BUDGET: $1,000 (in INR it would be Rs. 70,000) COUNTRY: India() USE AND PURPOSE: The build would be used for daily day-to-day computer activities such as word processing, web browsing, etc. The build would also be used for casual gaming, and occasional use of ripping old DVDs in Handbrake or related software. ** NOTE: I want a system that should suffice him for 5-7 yrs. to come. ** Before I list down the configuration planned by me, here is what he have in hand and hence would be used in the new configuration. Some of the parts would be upgraded or changed in near future. Input peripherals - Keyboard & Mouse A display monitor A speaker system A cabinet. The planned configuration is as follows. CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 ($195) Motherboard: ASUS X570 TUF GAMING PLUS ($240) Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 1660 Ventus Super 6GB ($265) RAM: A normal 3000MHz or 3200MHz 16GB RAM stick in 8x2 configuration. Power Supply: Cooler Master 650 ($60) SSD: A 2.5" SATA 500GB or a M.2 based 500GB SSD is what I'm confused with. HDD: A 2TB 7200rpm mechanical drive should be more than req. for him. My doubts are listed as follows:- How is AMD Ryzne 5 3400G compared to Ryzen 5 3600 ? And in accordance to my usage what could be a better option. What is the major difference between a x570 and x450 motherboard chipset ? Thanks in advance to everyone who helps.
  3. Thank You once again @Plouffe. I surely would refer and consult to your PC part list when I buy the parts.
  4. Well, this is not I've planned for, and this is not the kind of surprise that I was expecting. ??? In that case I would definitely require a GPU. And, thanks for clarifying my doubt with RAM sticks configuration too. ?
  5. Firstly, thanks for replying and suggestions as well as feedback. And, oh I didn't knew there was any website like this which could be used to build my PC. Also, a kind of stupid question to ask, do we really need a GPU if iGPU is not there for the system to even work properly ? And, may I know why did you recommend that I shouldn't opt for the x570 series, and instead opt for a x450 series one ?
  6. Firstly, thanks for replying. And, I won't be installing a GPU at this very moment, but I'll for sure soon. Since, I've a separate budget for GPU, hence not including it in this budget. Also, even I was of the belief that a GTX 1660 would be great. So, if you do have any other recommendation for GPU then do let me know.
  7. Hello everyone, This an update for my previous post. So, here's the scenario. I want to build a new PC for my cousin. The details are listed as below :- Budget: $1000 (± $50). Usage: Mainly used for daily web browsing and watching movies. Also, the system would be used by for casual gaming for games like GTA V, CS:GO, CoD, etc. Apart from that, he would be doing occasional beginner level video encoding using software like Handbrake. Build Type: ATX with no RGB, as he wants to keep it low profile. Before I list down the configuration planned by me, here is what he have in hand and hence would be used in the new configuration. Some of the parts would be upgraded or changed in near future. Input peripherals - Keyboard & Mouse A display monitor A speaker system A cabinet. So, after doing my research and watching various YouTube videos, the following is what I've planned for now, and your feedbacks and suggestions are welcomed for the same. Also, one important, I want to give him a system future proof, i.e., it should be good enough for 6-8 yrs. to come. CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 [ since this what most have recommended as the best value for money device though I would appreciate your reviews over Ryzen 5 3400G, and its performance with Ryzen 5 3600 ] Cooler: Stock since I won't be doing overclocking to it. Motherboard: I'm a bit confused about which one to choose. As of now I've decided to go with a AMD x570 chipset based motherboard since they've PCIe Gen 4 support, or with a x450 chipset since it would be cheaper. [ Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (for x570) || OR || MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (for x450) ] Memory: I've in mind to use 16GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM in 8x2 configuration (preferably) or 16x1. Storage: It would be a combination of HDD & SSD, with HDD for storage purpose and SSD for OS boot mainly. For HDD, I've decided to go with a Seagate Barracuda 2TB @ 7200RPM. For SSD, I'm undecided with which one to choose, a 2.5" SATA based or a M.2 based. But, a 500GB one should be more than enough for him. Video/Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 1660 Ventus Super 6GB. Power Supply: Cooler Master 650W, if that goes fine with the build. Hope I did provide y'all with sufficient details about my build. I welcome your suggestions, recommendations and feedback upon the same. Thank You to everyone who helps in advance. Peace!
